19th Ankara International Film Festival Award Winners

Not long ago this festival was held in Ankara, Turkey and since I do like Turkish cinema (wish I could see more) here are the award winners for this year.

Best Film: Riza, Tayfun Pirselimoğlu
Mahmut Tali Ongoren Special Award: Mutluluk (Bliss), Abdullah Oğuz
Best Director: Tayfun Pirselimoğlu for Riza
Onat Kutlar Best Script Award: Fatih Akin for Yasamin Kiyisinda (The Edge of Heaven)

To check all the movies, shorts and documentaries go here. Strangely enough they do not have the award winners in the site, but you’ll find information about all films in the festival. The list of all the award winners is here.
